I played almost a couple hours on Saturday firing up a few tables between Bodog, Pacific and William Hill. (I've decided to actually clear some more of the bonus there to see what kind of rakeback rate i'm getting - it doesnt seem as bad as I first thought).
On my Pacific $3/6 table I then proceeded to play 62 hands without winning a single one of them. No showdown wins, and no wins without showdown. Nasty. The next 30ish hands had me hitting a couple wins and then losing several hands with the second nuts, which are obviously very costly hands when playing 6max. I found myself about 50BBs down in that first hour or so.
At the same time I had a Littlewoods $2/4 table open where I had a couple massive fish sitting on my right. Again, I just could not win a hand, and managed to drop 50BBs there as well.
So after an hour of play i'm staring at a $500 loss so far for the weekend. Ugly. The tables were still great though with several huge fish on them, and I gradually started clawing back. So much so, that I actually made back all 50BBs on Pacific within the next hour, and then a few more BBs. William Hill paid off about 25BBs so I ended still a little down, but not too bad. I should grab a few hands from the session, as there were plenty of very rude beats.
Sunday I played just over an hour, where my bankroll didn't move until the last 5 minutes. It was one of those fairly frustrating sessions where I'd win a couple solid pots, and then the one time the fish would have a great hand, i'd have a good hand which would cost me quite a few BBs. (I managed to run into the 90/20 guy's bullets twice ....). About five minutes before quitting though I had that guy plus another 85/0 guy to my right and they both decided to cap the turn and river when I had AA on a board of ATTQK. All of a sudden i'm up about 25BBs for the session.
Monday was another session a little under an hour, where I again moved absolutely nowhere for about 40 minutes, before winning another 15BBs in the last orbit.
I guess the lesson for me was that patience is often rewarded - as long as you keep playing solidly.
I should also get a reasonable rakeback/bonus credit from the weekend, as a lot of my play was at $3/6. I also picked up the $25 from Fulltilt's really easy take 2 bonus.
